Hair is a squamous, keratinized epithelium with many layers of flat cells that give the hair shaft its shape and strength. However, many people are not familiar with what their hair can do and how they can protect it better to inhibit hair growth. Let's talk about what you can do to make your hair grow faster and stronger.
Is nutrient deficiency bad for hair?
The body needs the right amount of all the essential nutrients. The system can be thrown off by a lack in any area. When this happens, the body moves resources around to make sure it can keep going. If the body doesn't have enough iron, which is needed for oxygen to be carried by red blood cells, it can affect the scalp and hair follicles. In milder cases of iron deficiency, there may be no signs, and people who have it may ignore signs like being tired, cold, anxious, or short of breath. Some people notice hair loss, nails that break easily, or twitchy legs.
Is it true that hair gets different every 7 years?
The average lifespan of a single hair is between 2 and 7 years. The hair then falls out, and a new one grows in its place. Your genes also decide how much hair you have on your head and body. About 100 hair shafts fall out every day, so hair follicles are always in different stages of the hair cycle. Also, different parts of the scalp age at different rates. So, it's true that your hair always changes, but the 7 year cycle affects less and less of your head as you get older.
Does damaged hair still grow?
Luckily, in the vast majority of cases, damaged hair can grow out over time as long as the follicle is still there. So, damaged hair can still grow, but doing it over and over again can hurt your hair.
Is the treatment invasive?
Since F8 Hair Regrowth Treatment is painless, it does not leave a wound. The low-energy laser increases blood circulation without harming the skin.
What should I do following the treatment?
Consume enough water to boost metabolism and blood flow. Avoid rubbing, scraping, or exfoliating the skin on your scalp. You may shampoo your hair as usual. However, severe water temperatures should be avoided.
